Bummer: Infrastructure Bill Missing Lots Of Climate Cult Steps

It’s a real shame. But, even though Democrats are getting quite a bit of what they want while Republicans get almost nothing, Dems are still looking to reconcile their massive $3.5 trillion bill with the “bipartisan” bill

Bipartisan bill leaves out key climate, clean energy steps

The $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package unveiled by the Senate includes more than $150 billion to boost clean energy and promote “climate resilience” by making schools, ports and other structures better able to withstand extreme weather events such as storms and wildfires.

But the bill, headed for a Senate vote this week, falls far short of President Joe Biden’s pledge to transform the nation’s heavily fossil-fuel powered economy into a clean-burning one and stop climate-damaging emissions from U.S. power plants by 2035.

Notably, the deal omits mention of a Clean Electricity Standard, a key element of Biden’s climate plan that would require the electric grid to replace fossil fuels with renewable sources such as solar, wind and hydropower.

The CES, which would skyrocket people’s electricity bills while making electrical production less reliable.

Nor does it include a Civilian Climate Corps, a Biden favorite and a nod to the Great Depression-era New Deal that would put millions of Americans to work on conservation projects, renewable energy and helping communities recover from climate disasters.

Giving cultists over-priced jobs, empowering them to be nags and attempt to dictate to citizens.

The White House says the bipartisan deal is just the first step, with a proposed $3.5 trillion, Democratic-only package following close behind. The larger bill, still being developed in Congress, will meet Biden’s promise to move the country toward carbon-free electricity, make America a global leader in electric vehicles and create millions of jobs in solar, wind and other clean-energy industries, supporters say.

See? That “bipartisan” bill is just a placeholder for the real deal, especially since there’s a good chance that the Democrat controlled House will not approve the bipartisan bill

“It is clear that the deal does not meet the moment on climate or justice,″ said Tiernan Sittenfeld, a senior vice president of the League of Conservation Voters.

“This looks like the Exxon Infrastructure Bill,″ said Janet Redman of Greenpeace USA. “An infrastructure bill that doesn’t prevent a full-blown climate catastrophe by funding a swift transition to renewable energy would kill millions of Americans.″

Said by people who fail to practice what they preach. This isn’t about science, it’s about power.

If Doing Something about ‘climate change’ was so important you’d think Warmists would show us the way. When does Murphy take the train from Connecticut to D.C.? Nah, he flies in fossil fueled jets.

    With Biden, the buck stops at other agencies.

    From his press conference announcing the eviction moratorium:

    Q Mr. President, we’re learning that your administration is about to announce a new partial eviction moratorium, COVID related. Can you tell us any more about that? And are you sure it’s going to pass Supreme Court muster?

    THE PRESIDENT: The answer is twofold. One, I’ve sought out constitutional scholars to determine what is the best possibility that would come from executive action, or the CDC’s judgment, what could they do that was most likely to pass muster, constitutionally.

    The bulk of the constitutional scholarship says that it’s not likely to pass constitutional muster. Number one. But there are several key scholars who think that it may and it’s worth the effort. But the present — you could not — the Court has already ruled on the present eviction moratorium.

    So I think what you’re going to see, and I — look, I want to make it clear: I told you I would not tell the Justice Department or the medical experts, the scientists what they should say or do. So I don’t want to get ahead.

    The CDC has to make the — I asked the CDC to go back and consider other options that may be available to them. You’re going to hear from them what those other options are.

    I have been informed they’re about to make a judgment as to potential other options. Whether that option will pass constitutional measure with this administration, I can’t tell you. I don’t know. There are a few scholars who say it will and others who say it’s not likely to.

    But, at a minimum, by the time it gets litigated, it will probably give some additional time while we’re getting that $45 billion out to people who are, in fact, behind in the rent and don’t have the money. That’s why it was passed in — in the act that we passed in the beginning of my administration, and it went to the states. . . .

    But in the meantime, I’ve asked, isn’t there any safety valve we can put in? And it’s the one I explained to you. Again, CDC will announce that and the details of exactly how it works. I’m not telling — I told them I want them to take a look. I didn’t tell them what they had to do.

    And my hope is, it’s going to be a new moratorium that in some way — and I’m not going to announce it now; I’ll let them announce it — in some way covers close to 90 percent of the American people who are renters. And so that’s all I can tell you now.

    Thank you very much.

    Q Why not 100 percent? What’s the difference?

    THE PRESIDENT: Because it’s a — (laughs) — let them explain that to you. Okay? I don’t want to get too far ahead.

    Biden is will to say that he knows the moratorium won’t pass legal analysis, the Sixth Circuit has already stopped the original moratorium, and yet there is no substantive difference between it and this moratorium.

    The left screamed when Trump needed to be impeached when he did not violate the Constitution, and now they are supporting Biden’s violation of the Constitution.

    The left hates that pesky document, because all the left has is hate.

      Impeachment of a president does not require that they have violated the Constitution.

      The right hates that pesky document, because besides their inherent disdain for reason and knowledge, all the right has is hate.

        One of the painful signs of years of dumbed-down education is how many people are unable to make a coherent argument. They can vent their emotions, question other people’s motives, make bold assertions, repeat slogans– anything except reason.
